Playing with Colored Pencils and White Embossing Powder

Just spending time in my craft room playing this morning with a new purchase from Avery Elle Stamps (Floral Frame), colored pencils and white embossing powder on kraft paper.  The white embossed sentiment is from W Plus 9 and finished off with some splatters of diluted white acrylic paint, a couple of rhinestones and twine and a button.

I am loving the look of colored pencils on kraft paper.  I got a package of 36 colored pencils from Costco for less than $10 - and they seem to do the trick!  I invested in Copics a few years back, so I don't want to put lots of money into other coloring media!  I'm pretty pleased with how these colored up!
